|My Journal Page|
So yesterday the idea just hit me! I came up with the perfect solution to my conflict and I'm really excited about it. I'm not sure why I didn't think of it sooner. As I complete a sketch or painting, I am going to print out the artwork on a 4 x 6 card and attach it to a journal page. Then I can add my thoughts about the piece, the date that it was completed and in this way I will fill my journal with pages that are especially interesting to me and create a fun portfolio of my work at the same time. It's a win win in my book (Journal)!
So last night was my first entry using this format and low and behold I got so creative that I actually started writing a poem to go along with my "Resting Hummingbird" sketch. This whole process got me so excited that I was formulating more poems for a couple of other sketches I have recently completed. I was scribbling down a flood of ideas on a piece of scrap paper between brushing my teeth and and taking my vitamins. If I hadn't been just drop down unconsciously tired, I might have filled several pages with madly scribbled pose. Blow out the cobwebs! My mind was in creative hyper-drive.
So don't you dare laugh at me but I decided I would share with you not only my journal page entry but my rough draft of the poem I wrote call "The Hummingbird Song".
The Hummingbird Song
The song you sing is hardly a song at all
I may not see you in the branches but I can hear your call
While the other birds fill the air with a melody so sweet
Your song is more like a sour off tune tweet
Or maybe it’s more like a chit, chee-dit or a chirp
To me it sounds more like the scolding I get when I loudly burp
Not at all a pleasant sound to my ear
Rather it is more like I’m being scoffed and chided I fear
Makes me wonder how could one so cute, tiny and small
Have a disposition and attitude that's bigger than all?
